Paint remover

Anyone have any recommendations on paint remover for my 98c? I want something that I can just put on it and let it sit and do it's work over night. Anyone have any recommendations? I know I remember Grunt having a gun that he used paint remover on.

Like Trig said, try and find the toughest automotive paint stripper you can. I dont know of any off the top of my head.

get this brand in the middle:

trust me it is good...and some 250 grit sandpaper, steel wool and some chemical safe gloves.

If you want to actually smooth out the surfaces to polish them and not only remove the paint then you need more then just stripper. I would go with the finest grit you can, so that you don't remove excess metal and can get it smoothest. Look in the autopainting section of a parts store for some wet/dry paper in 800 to 1100 grit. Get a little dish of water to dip your paper in, and hand sand it.
